PostPosted: Tue Feb 26, 2008 12:12 pm    Post subject: Question of the Week Reply with quote
We have not been having much activity here in MA. So to try and spur involvement starting next week, we will be having a question of the week. These questions will pertain only to koryu bujutsu, so you can rule out any answers that would not deal with that area of study.

This will be done very simply. If you are the first to post a question that is right and meets all the criteria for that question, you will get 1 point. I will keep up with the points, although I suggest you do the same, and those who get 4 points will get to ask the next week's question. This is not mandatory, so if you wish, I will defer it to the next person to reach 4 points. I will ask the first question on Monday morning, and if no one has answered the question correctly I will post the answer on Friday. And when someone gets to 4 points I will announce who will be the next person to ask a question on Friday as well. This will give those individuals the weekend to come up with a question. Also, I will of course abstain from answering questions. However, if there is a general consensus I will give a hint or two to help out. The first question will be easy and increase in difficulty until someone gets 4 points. This will hopefully makes it more sporting.

I hope everyone gets involved in this game and even if you are not sure about your answer, please try, you may be surprised. But do not post answers which are just obnoxious and erroneous.

To try and get everyone ready and involved in this activity, I would like to ask people to give suggestions as to what topic you want the first question to be on. I will poll the suggestions and take the majority opinion and form a question on that topic.

Good luck and I hope everyone has fun and learns alot!


Here there will be a list of members who participate in the thread and there point scores. When a person reaches four points all the points will be cleared, and we will start a new round as it were.

Bushikan - 1
pgsmith - 2
shin no sen - 2.5
srobertsthomson - 1

I am somewhat disappointed that know one made any suggestions. Because of this I am just going to post a very simple question. And I hope everyone gets evolved.


Question 1

You consider that a simple question?

Here's why I don't think it's a simple question. Off the top of my head, you could be referring to Araki ryu, Takenouchi ryu, Shin Shin Sekiguchi ryu, Sosuishitsu ryu, or Tatsumi ryu. I'm sure there are many others that I've not heard about, or just plain forgot.

So, was it one of those? Smile

Ah good point. I guess my mind is still on high speed. Although the reason I thought it would be simple is because it is the most well know in the west.

And yes you posted the right one in your examples.

But to be more specific:


What style of sogo bujutsu, which originated in current day Okayama in the year of 1532, is known for its main core of jujutsu?

Since it is only Tuesday, would everyone like me to post a new question?

If I do it will be a easier question since there will only be three days to answer. If everyone agrees, I will post another question tomorrow night.

If not feel free to post a suggestion for the topic for next week.

Since this is the 2 question it will have two parts.


Question 2
Name two ryu that Tsuda Gonnojo Nobuyuki, the founder of Owari Kan Ryu, trained in before he founded Owari Kan Ryu. Also name the teachers he studied under with the style they taught respectively.

I know that he had a foundation in Itto ryu, but you're going to make me do actual research to find the rest of the answers! May be a couple of days before I can get to my bookshelf though! Smile

Sorry Paul, but John beat you to it.

Congratulations John you have one point and are now tied with Paul.

Anyone want to go for three this week? I will make it a little harder so it will hopefully take up the rest of the week.

But I was not specific as to asking in what way I wanted the answer. And you gave the correct answer.

So I will give you credit. And good job.

And to recap, Iba Josuiken Hideaki was the founder of Shingyoto ryu.

Since it is only Tuesday I will post another question. I think this one will be a bit more challenging.

Question 2
One of Japan's greatest thinkers was not only a political theorist, but an author, teacher, and later went on to found Keio University.

Who was he, and what style did he train in?


As a side note, in the first post I have put a list of the people who have participated so far and there point score. Please refer to this, and make sure it is correct.

Yukichi Fukuzawa founded Keio University, but I can't remember ever reading about what art he practiced. I am going to have to try and hunt that one down when I have a chance.

Good question Jonah! Smile

Mr Thomson,

First of welcome to the forum.

If I may ask you, would you happen to belong to the Melbourne Koryu Kenkyukai?

You are correct. However, to get all the point value which I should have specified early, one needs to put all the criteria for the question in one post.

Since I was not clear enough, both people will receive a point for their contributions to the thread.

We are starting to get up and going now, and I think most everyone is use to how these questions work. Hopefully this one will not be too difficult.

Question 3
In Kyushu there are a set of caves that have fostered two styles through the enlightenment they gave to those styles founders. What were the names of the caves, who were the men who found insight into the way of martial prowess in them, and what styles did they go on to create?

Be careful. Some sources sight the founder of one of the styles to be the founder of the other. Use caution, and reputable sources for your answers. And this is somewhat of a vague question, but if you search thoroughly enough you will find the answers. Again I am seeking three answers to gave credit for the question.

And one more thing. The founder of one of the styles is the one credited with its founding, and is not neccessarily the one who did so.

Since no one has made an attempt at this question I will give a hint which I think should point people in the right direction.

Both of these styles would go on to influence the two most influential ryu of swordsmanship, i.e. the Itto ryu and Yagyu Shinkage ryu and their offshoots.
